BBC's James Coomarasamy in Ukraine and Crimea and Romeo Dallaire on witnessing Rwanda Genocide

Today, we'll breakdown how the genocide in Rwanda happened 20 years ago, and the intentional decisions of the U.N. and Western powers not to stop it. Then, we’ll discuss eastern Ukraine with the BBC’s James Coomarasamy. Plus we'll talk about the metric system, and its absence of use in the United States. Historian John Schmidt tells us the story.
